Re: [platform-help-dev] Location of doc.zip


A deployed plugin should have doc.zip at the plugin root directory.
However, during develpment, you can place it wherever is more convenient. In fact, you should probably not need to have a doc.zip during development, but just a folder "help" that contains all the help topics. You can modify your build script (build.xml) to package the help files into doc.zip when you build the entire plugin.

Can doc.zip be located in a folder below the plugin folder? My developer
would like to use a folder structure like:

blah.component
           src
           bin
           icons
           help
                 doc.zip
                 toc.xml
           plugin.xml
           plugin.properties

When I do this, the help TOC appears in the navigation pane, but Eclipse
cannot find the topics themselves. If I put the HTML files in the help
folder as separate files, Eclipse finds them just fine. however, Eclipse
does not appear to search doc.zip when it is in a folder within the plugin
folder.
